Volume of Pyramids and Cones GOAL 1

FINDING VOLUMES OF PYRAMIDS AND CONES

In Lesson 12.4, you learned that the volume of a prism is equal to Bh, where B is the area of the base and h is the height. From the figure at the right, it is clear that the volume of the pyramid with the same base area B and the same height h must be less than the volume of the prism. The volume of the pyramid is one third the volume of the prism.

Study Tip The formulas given in Theorems 12.9 and 12.10 apply to all pyramids and cones, whether right or oblique. This follows from Cavalieri’s Principle, stated in Lesson 12.4.

EXAMPLE 2

Finding the Volume of a Cone

Find the volume of each cone. a. Right circular cone

b. Oblique circular cone

17.7 mm 4 in. 12.4 mm 1.5 in.

SOLUTION a. Use the formula for the volume of a cone.

1 3

Formula for volume of cone

1 3

Base area equals πr 2.

= (π 12.42 )(17.7)

1 3

Substitute.

≈ 907.18π

Simplify.

V = Bh = (πr 2)h

So, the volume of the cone is about 907.18π, or 2850 cubic millimeters.

b. Use the formula for the volume of a cone.

1 3

Formula for volume of cone

1 3

Base area equals πr 2.

= (π 1.5 2)(4)

1 3

Substitute.

= 3π

Simplify.

V = Bh = (πr 2)h

So, the volume of the cone is 3π, or about 9.42 cubic inches.

EXAMPLE 3

Using the Volume of a Cone

Use the given measurements to solve for x. 13 ft

SOLUTION

1 3 1 2614 = (πx 2)(13) 3

V = πr 2h

STUDENT HELP

Study Tip To eliminate the fraction in an equation, you can multiply each side by the reciprocal of the fraction. This was done in Example 3.

7842 = 13πx 2 192 ≈ x 2 13.86 ≈ x

Formula for volume Substitute.

x Volume = 2614 ft3

Multiply each side by 3. Divide each side by 13π. Find positive square root.

So, the radius of the cone is about 13.86 feet. 12.5 Volume of Pyramids and Cones

V = πr 2 h = π(52)(8) ≈ 209 cm3 = 209 mL The rate of accumulation of oil in the funnel is 147 º 42 = 105 mL/s. To find the time it will take for the oil to fill the funnel, divide the volume of the funnel by the rate of accumulation of oil in the funnel as follows: 105 mL 1s

1s 105 mL

209 mL ÷ = 209 mL ª ≈ 2 s

The funnel will overflow after about 2 seconds.

VOLCANOES Before 1980, Mount St. Helens was cone shaped with a height of about 1.83 miles and a base radius of about 3 miles. In 1980, Mount St. Helens erupted. The tip of the cone was destroyed, as shown, reducing the volume by 0.043 cubic mile. The cone-shaped tip that was destroyed had a radius of about 0.4 mile. How tall is the volcano today? (Hint: Find the height of the destroyed cone-shaped tip.)
